The other day we posted some images created by FX artists Gary J. Tunnicliffe, which was his own personal campaign piece to create the new Pinhead in Dimension Films’ Hellraiser, which is set to be written and directed by Pascal Laugier. The problem? A bunch of people seem to be confused on what these pictures were – and many seem to think it really is the new Pinhead! Not so… read beyond the break to see what Pascal Laugier had to say to Bloody-Disgusting.
I’m more or less forced to write you this message since the supposedly new Pinead photos are confusing people…
The stills of the new Pinhead you published on your site a few days ago have NOTHING TO DO with the official HELLRAISER reboot project I’m preparing.
I know you already made it clear in your article but you know how internet works : these photos being published in various sites without any details or explanation, a lot of fans seem to think that the new Pinhead will look like that. My answer is : NO HE WON’T.
This version of Pinhead came from the vision of Gary J. Tunnicliffe and not mine or my producer’s. I never met Gary and although I respect him a lot, I want to be very clear about the fact that my vision of the character will be TOTALLY different.
The new look of Pinhead is a VERY imortant matter to all of us.
